voters have no idea what you're talk about. >> the number in the times front page story about the deficit and, you know, the fourth straight year of trillion plus deficit, these are things that concern -- >> the american voters. >> and a number that resonates. talk about trillion dollar deficits an every normal person is going to go what are we doing. >> let's be clear about that ad. the ad is a strong ad, but generally candidates do straight to camera ads when they feel like they're in trouble. president obama did his one and only after the welfare ads started to hurt him, you didn't build that, he went straight to camera. romney's ad is a response to the 47% and what that's doing to him in places including ohio and to go back to curt's point about why romney is personally beyond the economic numbers, the president has had a problem with white working-class vote es for a long time. worse in the south than in the industrial midwest but still there in the industrial midwest. mitt romney is almost like -- almost the jerry built to be the worst possible candidate to talk to white working-cla
.s. team at the 39th ryder cup. this was aufrl. the europeans roaring bang from a 10-4 deficit late saturday to take a tuning 14 1/2 to 13 1/2 point win. germany's martin kaymer sank a putt on the final hole to seal the victory. honestly it was all lost well before that. europe has won the seven out of the last nine ryder cups. and soledad i don't know if you had a chance to watch this debacle. a debacle embarrassing. >> yes, it was killing my poor husband. all right, john, thank you. >>> back to our top story this morning. two days until the first presidential debate. both candidates are getting last-minute preparations. "the new york times" reporting that mitt romney is coming armed on wednesday night, writing this, mr. romney's team has concluded the debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers that he's memorized and habeen practicing on airds since august. president obama responded to that report last night with this. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. i don't know about that. who's g
up, it's too risky to cut taxes and blow another hole in the deficit and then hope that economic growth will somehow fill that hole later on. >> well, i think what andrea, what most people have seen is over the last fou years the economy hasn't grown. we haven't seen the job growth we need, we haven't seen the type of -- and we've seen trillions of dollars in deficits from this president. so governor romney put out early on in this campaign put out a 59-point plan a comprehensive plan to put america back to work. i think tonight's going to be another opportunity to talk about a number of these issue silos important to americans when they look at essentially all the cost pressures they have in their household. first is the tax reform. fundamental tax reform across the board which is going to help americans put more money in their pockets for those middle class americans that do a lot of the spending in this country and i think they need it the most. >> will governor romney explain? >> on issues like health care, those are also issues that the governor will address comprehensively
and the deficit is very important for a candidate to appeal to independents. mitt romney during the presidential primary here that he won convincingly eve emphasized that a great deal and i think that helped him with indianas. we are without a sales tax and income tax. people understand here that financial decisions have consequences. i can recall in 2000 when john mccain talked about the debt and the deficit the bush campaign at the time said what is he talking about? john mccain beat george bush here by 20 minutes in that prime rare re. bush retooled his message and barely won new hampshire by talking about the debt and the deficit. gregg: kevin in 2010 the last election there, if i understand it, if i recall correctly i think republicans won almost every office, but that doesn't mean it's going to happen that way this year, the pendulum could begin to swing in the other direction? >> that's correct. we had the largest republican sweep for a legislature of any state in the country in 2010. four years earlier in 2006 the democrats took control of the legislature at all levels of power for the f
the president not spending enough in outer space. this is mr. the deficit is coming to eat your grandchildren, but that's okay. because we should still be going to the moon to keep the chinese from being space station there. they are going to build a toy store there. and mitt romney is going to send all the work there. he is a remarkable guy, he is very capable of sending your job to china and making his money. >> stephanie: yeah exactly. love your headlines, scott brown will not be bullied by a girl from harvard. the only clips i saw was him bringing up her heritage over and over again. >> i think he's making a little bit of headway -- you know making her explain what she did for asbestos companies. it helped the asbestos workers, but you have to understand bankruptcy law to understand how it did that and you can't make a commercial out of that. the whole you make $350,000 to teach one course -- well he has been to law school. he knows how law schoolworks. >> stephanie: exactly. >> that line of attack is completely dissident from the line he sold to the country for three year
is from higher income households. >> $1.3 trillion deficit you definitely need something to bring that deficit down. bring the national debt down at some point down the road. once there is a balanced budget. who knows when that would be. most people assume nothing is going to happen as far as the fiscal cliff is concerned between now and november 6. but afterwards in that lame duck session between november 6 and december 31, something will happen. are you among those who will agree -- agree that the fiscal cliff will be avoided? >> yes. i think it will be avoided. i mean, you know, depends on the election. you know. if governor romney wins it is likely -- would kick the can into next year. leave everything the same for a few months. let -- the new president come into office and get it together. probably in the spring. president obama wins the election, then right after the election, lame duck, the clock will start ticking and he will be under a lot of pressure to do something. let me say one other thing. you know, i think the most likely scenario is that we are actually going to h
, the deficit and debt and how it's changed since he ran for president in 1992 and '96. find richard wolffe's article in today's edition of "usa today" and at usa today.com. raz perot tonight -- ross perot tonight on c-span at 9 eastern. >>> next, a look at the presidential campaign with libertarian party candidate gary johnson. the former republican governor of new mexico talks about his view of the two-party system and obstacles for third-party candidates. from "washington journal," this is 40 minutes. >> host: joining us now is gary johnson, the former governor of new mexico, a republican 1995-2003 who is now the libertarian presidential nominee, and gary johnson, first question. when you look at the major party candidates and this year's cycle, what's missing in the debate and the dialogue? and what do you wring to the table -- what do you bring to the table? >> guest: well, how about truth for starters. the notion that both obama and romney are arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash me
they need is a 20% across the board tax cut. and let's have less revenue and fix the deficit using hogwarts magic which is pretty much the paul ryan idea. that's what the widow's peak is about. i think it is part of his -- >> part of his dark hearts. >> john: they're slytherin all the way. i wouldn't trust them on a quidditch field. here is great audio that i'm thrilled about. i want to play all of this. todd akin, america's sweetheart. we talked with laura bassett about todd akin and about this guy should be written off forever about his comments about legitimate rape and how the woman's body has a way of shutting down pregnancies that were brought on by legitimate rape as opposed to the illegitimate kind that kind of makes me feel dirty. i feel better then is legitimate. don't you, peter? >> absolutely. >> john: todd akin managed to say something more offensive than that in my opinion. a lot of you will disagree. we've seen the rnc running to todd akin's defense after begging him to drop out. reince priebus -
. is all of this going to hurt him? >> well, look, right the main focus is the economy, deficit, jobs prosperity, the affordable care act, these will dominate the landscape but i find this interesting. on 9/10, the day before this all happened, gallup was 50-44. excuse me this morning it is 48-46 in gallup. jon: 48% for the president and 46% for romney. >> in rasmussen was 48-45. now it is 47-46. there is a little bit of tightening. in august nbc "wall street journal" had the president's approval on foreign affairs is 54-40. the latest one is 49-46. the president has not come across as a strong leader on the world stage. he has come across as a politician. it was his own fault. imagine what happened on 9/12 i will not go to las vegas for campaign event. first time since 1979 an ambassador of the united states has been murdered i will sit down with intelligence agencies to meet and discuss what needs to be done to get back at jihadists and get people who did this and not only that, further damage the networks that brought that about. instead he got on airplane to give a rally at high s
, look, we've had trillion-dollar deficits. every single year, he's added $5 trillion to the national debt. you've had all the bailouts. you've had so many things that mitt romney could run on, and he hasn't been able to do it. willie, that is the ongoing frustration that this man has been given more material than any republican nominee since ronald reagan in 1980, and he can't seem to connect the dots and explain why a conservative economic world view should be used to turn this economy around. it is a daily frustration for conservatives. >> and daniel hopes mr. romney will take up this point at the debate six days from now. steve, let's inside these numbers. you've got some charts explaining president obama's recent surge in the polls. >> yes, because while i agree with a lot of what joe said, there are some substantive reasons why president obama should be doing better at the moment. they don't get as much attention. so let's talk a little about it. first, nobody is happy with the state of the economy at the moment. 2% growth with 8% unemployment. but as we've talked about on this
failure failures, the failure to create jobs or bring down the deficit. >> kevin, i want to get to some smalls we have on latino likely voters, but i want to quickly ask you, why did governor romney wait to this point to bring this forward on immigration policy? >> well, kate, we've had a lot of discussions on this issue. i think this was an opportunity where a question was asked, specifically on that question, and the governor answered it. he did talk in expansive terms about immigration, what he would do to modernize the immigration system, how it's an important part of our economy. during his recent interview that he had with univision. and i think it will continue to be a part of this debate. >> kevin, i want to show you, we put up on our screen for our viewers some new polling we have out today, showing that president obama really has an overwhelming lead among likely latino voters. 70 to 26 for governor romney. are now aggressively courting the latino vote, are you expecting to get anywhere near or beyond what senator mccain got back in 2008, which was 31%? >> well, kate, thank yo
